Purple Maiʻa Innovation Fellowship Application
THE 2019 PURPLE MAIʻA INNOVATION FELLOWSHIP prepares young people for leadership in social entrepreneurship and technological innovation in Hawaiʻi.

The fellowship is a five-month program that combines intensive on-the-job startup experience; the chance to participate in an immersive, holistic business, technological, cultural, and social and environmental curriculum; and the opportunity to be at the forefront of growing Hawaiʻi’s indigenous innovation ecosystem.

We are looking for entrepreneurial, creative, and driven individuals who possess a high degree of curiosity and humility, an innovator and facilitator in the local public interest with a profound sense of purpose regardless of the scale and scope of the challenge.

Description of Tasks:

Fellows will be assigned to between three and four startup teams to help them build prototypes, create promotional materials, design websites, interact with community members, and prepare for Demo Day.

Fellows will be expected to produce a 1,000 word blog-post highlighting their experiences and allow us to interview them during and at the end of the fellowship.

Fellows may also, depending on their expertise, be asked to assist in the administration/implementation of the Purple Prize.

Term of Fellowship: June 2019-November 2019

Compensation: $2,000
